DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Thanks to the internet, a North Texas boy’s prayer for children may actually be heard around the world.
He may be small, but he already has a powerful voice.
When a youth minister at the Potter’s House non-denominational church, in Dallas asked Isaiah Jackson to pray at a recent christening, the video went viral.
Now the words of a boy, who was five years old at the time, are inspiring people all around the world.
“In South Africa, Venezuela, Dallas, just from everywhere,” Isaiah’s mom, Tammy Square, mentioned a few places where people sent communication. “We had no idea that that many people would receive the prayer themselves, personally themselves.”
Jackson’s mom says her son’s words have had an amazing impact. “I hear so many testimonies on how that prayer blessed their lives,” she said. “There was a lady who told me a testimony about her boyfriend who had never been to church and how Isaiah’s prayer inspired him to get his life right with the Lord. He said if a little boy could do it, he could to.”
As you may have figured, Isaiah seems to be very mature in his faith. “My mom tells me how to pray, but God tells me what to pray,” he said.
At the heart of it all is a little boy who loves God and his mommy. “He did well. He did excellent. I was so proud of him. I was really proud of him,” Square said beaming. She then told her son directly, “I was proud of you” and the two embrace.
